Roger Federer got hooked by seeing how fanatic I was’, says top coach





Following the 2010 Wimbledon quarter-final loss against Tomas Berdych, Roger Federer was one of the players to beat for the remainder of the season. The Swiss lost the Toronto final before conquering Cincinnati, playing well at the US Open and experiencing that heartbreaking semi-final loss to Novak Djokovic.




Andy Murray stopped Roger in the Shanghai semi-final, and the Swiss embraced his beloved indoor streak with titles in Stockholm and Basel.





With momentum on his side, Roger entered the Paris Masters as the top seed, leading the field in one of the fastest indoor tough tournaments of the last 15 years.




The Swiss outclassed Richard Gasquet, Radek Stepanek and Jurgen Melzer to advance to the semi-final, thus looking good to chase the title that was missing from his collection.





On November 13, 2010, Gael Monfils defeated Roger Federer 7-6, 6-7, 7-6 in a thrilling contest that lasted two hours and 41 minutes.





The Frenchman fended off five match points and reached his second consecutive final in Paris.




It was Gael’s first victory over Roger in six meetings, giving his best to overcome a great rival and give the home crowd something to cheer about.
